330: How to ban visitors by IP address in OpenCart 1.5.2
At times, you may find it necessary to block or ban specific IP addresses from visiting your store. You may want to block people from an IP address if they have placed a fraudulent order or they may have left abusive or negative comments on your website. With the new release of OpenCart 1.5.2, the ability to ban IP addresses from your website is easy. You'll add IP addresses to a ban list in the OpenCart admin dashboard.
- Log into your OpenCart Admin Dashboard
- Go to Sales >> Customers >> IP Blacklist
- Click "Insert" in the upper right corner
- Type in the IP address you want to block
- Click "Save"
Once you have blocked the IP address, any visitor from that IP will not be able to access your OpenCart shopping cart website.
